Overwatch Issues Reports

Latest outage, problems and issue reports in social media:
  • ZalbarTheMad Zalbar (@ZalbarTheMad) reported

    @EeveeA_ @EmilyKrumlinde I will patiently wait till an updated driver fixes the problem before attempting Apex again. In the meanwhile, I have Overwatch League to watch.

  • Crimson_Daze Shadowrave (@Crimson_Daze) reported

    Tracer is the most broken Overwatch character. Prove me wrong.

  • MrHighNoon Jesse McCree (@MrHighNoon) reported

    Jesse couldn’t help but feel bad that he left Ashes heart broken when he was arrested and had a new life in overwatch but deadlock blood in him till this day maybe Ashe could find it that he was truly sorry

  • camgetslewd Cam Gets Lewd 🔞 (@camgetslewd) reported

    Honestly I don’t even care about a new hero in Overwatch because the game probably won’t change and Blizzard doesn’t seem keen on fixing anything or listening to the community. We told them it was a problem and now that the game’s shit there’s not much anything they can do.

  • starlight_sam Starlight (@starlight_sam) reported

    @Gloriousdownfal Honestly It's not really worth it. R6 and overwatch have a lot of similar problems with like double the amount of toxicity in the community. I have 800 hours in that game and I'm genuinely considering putting it down because of bad design, bad customer service, and huge toxicity

  • BigH_D13 FêteD (@BigH_D13) reported

    Id love to be able to use psn @PlayStation this outage interupted 4 people trying to work on overwatch

  • Dr50cal Josh Lucas (@Dr50cal) reported

    PSN seems to be down but other than my friends list not working and my online status being invisible, it seems to be running perfectly normal. im online in Overwatch rn

  • modaojisoo jisoo (@modaojisoo) reported

    @SandyK1LL @PlayOverwatch Lol overwatch actually fix the game

  • Bepis_OW Bepis_OW (@Bepis_OW) reported

    Might quit overwatch after lantrek. The game is just so dogshit compared to every other game out there and i feel like the devs are not planning to do anything to fix it anytime soon.

  • aumoras 🎀🖤 ᴀᴜᴍᴏʀᴀs 🖤🎀 (@aumoras) reported

    I think the overwatch/spectrum high ping issue was finally fixed after like a week or two so hopefully I can check out the new Paris map without having terrible aim and being made fun of. 😂

  • Shr0ne Joakim Norup (@Shr0ne) reported

    Okey, I got this problem.. I want to stream BUT I'm stuck playing Overwatch, like I know it's not fun to watch.... I'm addicted.

  • DrTechMD DrTechMD (@DrTechMD) reported

    @THE_MAAFIA @PeterGodmez @Ty_Digital What you do is you make just Competitive cost money to play. You see the issue with Consoles with nothing but smurfs because you can have infinite accounts for one Overwatch Disc

  • ibrahim_1243dxc ibrahim_1243DXC (@ibrahim_1243dxc) reported

    @exefilesdotcom @Steam_Support I played Overwatch, and I couldn't find a problem.

  • Rosegold_fairy RoseGoldHeals✨ (@Rosegold_fairy) reported

    Speaking of which... I wish overwatch was better.. I've played since launch and beta, there is just too much shit broken nowadays. Makes me sad.

  • shanealdo21 shane ives-keeler (@shanealdo21) reported

    Had a power cut issue live streaming back up and running so head on over to lighting games for #Overwatch Ana gameplay

  • orphiius Orphiius (@orphiius) reported

    If Stylosa, the ultimate OW fanboy is sayin that overwatch is currently not fun, then blizzard havin some issues

  • JswitchGaming justin hebert (@JswitchGaming) reported

    @JudgeDreaddSlo1 @PlayApex No slobs...switched that when it gave me issues with overwatch months ago. I have an i58600 and a 1070. Encode output it 720/60 typically with bitrate at 4k usually.

  • Nanoed_Flash 😎 (@Nanoed_Flash) reported

    @MemesSio @bruce_ow @PlayOverwatch You're one of the problems of overwatch

  • popiiko NATIONAL IDIOT HOURS (@popiiko) reported

    oversumo constantly telling me that i'm overperforming in competitive overwatch.. is this a glitch or this is the truth 😔

  • fednv 👉🏻 (@fednv) reported

    Overwatch is unplayable please fix reaper you bunch of ******* morons @PlayOverwatch

  • NathandreaDavis Nathandrea (@NathandreaDavis) reported

    In League, you get autofilled into roles. It sucks, but at least everyone gets a turn. Overwatch needs to copy the Apex character selection screen as soon as possible. I am done playing this game until they fix their soloqueue. I would take a refund if they offered it.

  • GianniVoices Gianni Matragrano (@GianniVoices) reported

    @ZACHxFULLER buy a logitech kappa Nah but seriously, no clue. The only thing I can say is that I had that Overwatch DeathAdder since 2016, no issues, gave it to my wife who to this day hasn't had issues BUT she hasn't used it in a while so perhaps that update theory is onto something.

  • mellorinelove mellorine (@mellorinelove) reported

    Overwatch community is so bad, because the game is so bad. It's not the fandom that ruins the community or some gay characters. It's the core fundamentels of the game that are just not working and make people so frustrated that they become toxic.

  • Oni_Within Sol (@Oni_Within) reported

    Another person left on my team.... For the 4th ******* time... #Overwatch FIX YOUR STUPID GAME

  • DailyMills cw harassment squad (@DailyMills) reported

    Bumped into Sam today. They were ******* Josh (formerly 'Overwatch #1'). We must fix this, hopefully with Shower

  • DailyMills cw harassment squad (@DailyMills) reported

    **** Josh (formerly 'Overwatch #1') tbh; they are making out with . We must fix this, hopefully with Eggu

  • ThePVDSWE Maja_A_S_S (@ThePVDSWE) reported

    @FunkTion29 @IGN @kingxaviara Overwatch may be a broken garbage game, only playable in vs ai pretty much, but it isn't a shitty BR.

  • queenheehyun bella (@queenheehyun) reported

    wait someone was holding up a “JINSOUL IS SKINNY” sign in Overwatch League LMFAOOO

  • kellyndumas Kelly Dumas (@kellyndumas) reported

    I only really play when I've got to get a fix of Persona 5 or Nier, and I hated playing Overwatch on console so when I got my new PC, I went back to my PC Overwatch account.

  • C_moneyPlays C_money (@C_moneyPlays) reported

    I find it fairly amusing that someone needs to call me a ***** and repeatedly say “I hate n****rs” in voice chat in Overwatch because he’s so insecure that he needs to take it out on someone else because, god forbid, he’s the problem.

  • blurryow blurry (@blurryow) reported

    this meta is so random n dumb and overwatch is just gonna add a new hero to try and fix it

  • Fierce01_OW Fierce01 (@Fierce01_OW) reported

    @Blizzard_Ent @PlayOverwatch Overwatch just crashed. I was just starting a competitive match and my game suddenly froze, and then closed. I lost 50 sr becuase of this crash. Fix your game.

  • Fierce01_OW Fierce01 (@Fierce01_OW) reported

    @Blizzard_Ent @PlayOverwatch Overwatch just crashed. I was just starting a competitive match and my game suddenly froze, and then closed. I lost 50 sr becuase of this crash. Fix your game.

  • mekastrike meka 🍶 (@mekastrike) reported

    proof that overwatch sucks is that strat not working

  • Biggs270 Eddie Biggs (@Biggs270) reported

    The Overwatch matchmaking system is a lot like Blizzards customer service. Needs improvement

  • DailyMills cw harassment squad (@DailyMills) reported

    **** Josh (bean boy) tbh; they are ******* Josh (formerly 'Overwatch #1'). We must fix this, hopefully with Sock

  • RubikGamesYT Andrew 🌐 (@RubikGamesYT) reported

    @TheTacticalRab If it’s not broken don’t fix it, bo2 LP was legendary and i personally don’t see why they can’t just take like LoL’s or Overwatch’s LP System those games have been out for years and they are still strong

  • Boy29Steak SteakBoy29 (@Boy29Steak) reported

    Jeff you need to fix your shit with competitive and the toxicity or don’t make a piece of shit game #Overwatch

  • captainfanattic wolf justifier (@captainfanattic) reported

    mei is a straight up broken character i dont care if shes "not broken in GM" because the majority of overwatch players ARE NOT GM. i dont give a good god darn if shes not broken at insanely high ranks. she broken in everything below masters and it makes me want to quit overwatch.

  • Baca68 Christopher Baca (@Baca68) reported

    @BlizzardCS Just downloaded update for WoW and now my monitor flashes on and off while in game. Also does it with Overwatch. Out of the game there is no problem.

  • stormy_husky Unironic Lo-Fi Dog 💜⚡ (@stormy_husky) reported

    the next hero for overwatch is apparently supposed to be Haitian and i realllllyyy hope he's not a bad guy because Overwatch has a POC being part of a literal terrorist organization problem

  • WriterinShadows AuthorintheShadows (@WriterinShadows) reported

    Overwatch used to be such a great game that I loved. But not doing anything about their toxic player base (because reporting does nothing) and their unbalanced heroes (let's add more and not fix the others) has made me hate it now. I think it's about time to say goodbye to it.

  • GTMShaky Shaky (@GTMShaky) reported

    Daily tweet #55 to @PlayOverwatch to disable group chat in ranked play. Keep adding heroes and ignore the problem of lack of communication and toxicity in ranked games. #6playersinthechatchannel #overwatch

  • profitsbowlcut Tanaka Miku Fans Intl. (@profitsbowlcut) reported

    Well MAYBE if overwatch wasn't fckn BROKEN birdring wouldn't be forced to play fckn tank bc DPS are USELESS..

  • ItsFusionYT ItsFusion (@ItsFusionYT) reported

    @Blizzard_Ent My game randomly crash in a comp match but I was able to get back on the game in 5 seconds but then suspends me and so I lost sr because of it. I never leave games and now I'm really mad. Overwatch is going down hill.

  • oxtonbot lena (@oxtonbot) reported

    The event ends in Overwatch. That hasn't happened since my primal rage about half an outage,

  • SunshineGmrGrl SunshineGamerGirl (@SunshineGmrGrl) reported

    Felt good to #stream some #Overwatch last night! Although my updated pc wants to play on ultra I might have to change some settings to cast it without dropping frames 😅#livestreaming #issues

  • PhiPhiOhara Jaremi Carey (@PhiPhiOhara) reported

    Yo.....#Overwatch is sadly broken.........keep nerfing and buffing heroes that don't need it, mediocre events and skins.... Sucking all the joy out the game. Fix it Jeff. Kthxbye

  • Shinino_Kage Shinino Kage [TeEm][TDG][TMS] (@Shinino_Kage) reported

    @ben_kleager @aegies If Apex had monetized like Overwatch did, I'd have much less problem with it. Locking a lot of things behind a paywall (versus putting them in boxes, and letting people have a chance to earn boxes as they play versus a finite amount) sucks shit.

  • ImUnpaidIntern Tyler 😉 (@ImUnpaidIntern) reported

    I decided by myself that from now on I want all my streams to be apex. If apex still has problems streaming it though I'm gonna stream overwatch

  • STARS_Kristen STARS Coldsnare (@STARS_Kristen) reported

    I don’t care what anyone is saying overwatch is not doing well. When the que time for everything is over 5 min. There is a problem. And for qp at that. Imma just play league. Maybe they will get their shit together.

  • bellsdarling bubble POP (@bellsdarling) reported

    I can’t believe I almost called out from work just to play #Overwatch. I might have a problem...

  • CinnaRiesling Susanna | 🥟🍤 (@CinnaRiesling) reported

    🤔 I think I fixed the issue with my PC. Left it on Overwatch all morning to see if it'll crash. Haven't attempted XIV yet. Too many steps to log on. Next time.

  • kaspano TỴ (@kaspano) reported

    @the_coolsounds @PlayApex Revert any custom overclocks when running into issues. Some games just don't react well with overclocks sometimes, had a similar issue with Overwatch. Try disabling origin overlay entirely, has been an issue for some people. Type "game mode" into Windows search bar and disable.

  • ALTERNATIVE_MRH MichaelTweets (@ALTERNATIVE_MRH) reported

    @NovaZiegler Jeff said they had no plans to change her. Multiple times - the "we'll understand" reaction was reworkmercy and a raid on the forums. Overwatch has real issues they need to work on - commenting on singular personal requests is not one of them smh.

  • Beta_Kek Shane Lizard (@Beta_Kek) reported

    3-3 is so boring to watch in Overwatch. I legit get way too excited when ANYONE starts playing a dps character. Blizzard, pls fix.

  • LongLivePlague TheRealPlagueDoctor (@LongLivePlague) reported

    @YourOverwatchYT I've been getting this bad ping issue on overwatch ever since that optimization patch when Ashe came in. It actually made the game play worse on my gaming pc than better.

  • AdhesiveDog AdhesiveDog (@AdhesiveDog) reported

    @Blizzard_Ent you need to fix how overwatch works when people leave some guy was feeding and said he was gonna leave after a minute just so it was a 5v6 just because he said he didn’t like my voice and he did so. Vapid_Soul on ps4.

  • AlbinoGoblins AlbinoGoblins (@AlbinoGoblins) reported

    Does anyone know if I can use my X box controller with PC overwatch because i have issues using keyboard for games because of how close to my screen i need to get to see sometimes.

  • Leoboblol Will (aka Leo) (@Leoboblol) reported

    I've officially stepped down from @DerbyRaptors Team 1 overwatch, The game is in a state where I can't enjoy it anymore and it causes me too much stress on top of personal issues that are currently also hitting me hard
